I found the following recipes in a collection I saved while doing Flex. These sound great for fall weather!

Cream of Broccoli Soup
Servings | 4

1 medium onion(s), chopped
1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
2 pound broccoli, tough ends removed, stems and florets chopped
4 cup fat-free chicken broth, or vegetable broth
1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce, or to taste
1/4 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste

Put onion and garlic in a 2-quart saucepan with 1/4 cup water and simmer until onion is soft, about 10 minutes; spoon into large pot. Add broccoli and broth to onion mixture and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, turn down heat and simmer until broccoli is soft but still green, about 8 minutes. Do not cover pot while broccoli is cooking or it will turn gray.
Remove soup from heat and puree in batches in a blender until smooth. (Note: Be careful not to overfill blender; the hot liquid can splatter.) Add evaporated milk and hot pepper sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Yields about 1 3/4 cups per serving.

Southwestern Slow Cooker Chicken and Potato Soup
Servings | 4

3/4 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), cut into 1-inch cubes
3 small sweet potato(es), or 2 medium, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large onion(s), chopped
29 oz canned diced tomatoes, salsa-style with chiles, undrained
14 1/2 oz fat-free chicken broth
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, not thawed

Mix chicken, potatoes, onion, tomatoes, broth, oregano and cumin in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker (crockpot); cover and cook on low heat setting for at least 6 hours.
Stir in corn; cover and cook on high heat setting until chicken is no longer pink in the center and vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.

Just a note: Since I don't like sweet potatoes, I think that I will try this with white ones instead. I think it would still taste good.

Core Mushroom Barley Soup

This soup is great and freezes well. Great separated into lunch sized portions. Nice way to get in some of our healthy oil!

3/4 cup Pearl Barley
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
4 onions, chopped (I only used one)
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 1/2 pounds mushrooms, sliced
4 cups low sodium beef broth
3 carrots, sliced
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Minced parsley

In a large saucepan, stir the barley and 4 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the barley is partially cooked, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, heat the oil. Add the onions and celery; cook, stirring as needed, until softened, 6-8 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring as needed, until the mushrooms begin to soften and release their liquid, about 5 minutes.

Add the broth, carrots, tomato paste and barley WITH its liquid; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, stirring as needed, until the barley and carrots are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper; serve garnished with the parsley.

Makes 6 servings; 182 calories, 3 grams fat, 7 grams fiber. 2 points per serving. This would be 3 servings for me!
